More romance than Urban Fantasy
on 27 July 2009
I was looking forward to reading this book as I was hoping it was the start of another new promising urban fantasy series, but very early on in the book I realised that it was more what I would class a 'paranormal ROMANCE' than urban fantasy.
Now I definitely don't mind romance in a book but not when the whole plot seems to be there to progress the relationship of the herione and her male love interest. The plot at times is interesting and some characters show promise for further books in the series, but my main gripe was the heroine herself who I couldn't warm to at all. I also couldn't see any chemistry between herself and the demon Greyson Dante, although in the book they're having sex within a week of having met!
Having said that, I did enjoy some parts of the book and the prose does work to a certain extent for the genre.
The overall plot had too many holes and I felt not much was explained to my satisfaction. I don't think I'll be reading the next book in the series.
If you want proper urban fantasy books with meaty plots, wonderfully written characters and a smidgen of romance that progresses naturally through several books then try: Ilona Andrews (Kate Daniels series), Patriciak Briggs (Mercy Thompson series), Karen Chance (Cassie Palmer series) and Kim Harrinson (Rachel Morgan series)
